What started out as a pleasure drive on a sunny September day ended in tragedy for a San Juan Bautista attorney. While riding her motorcycle on Highway 101 in Santa Clara County, she was confronted with a wheel which flew off a truck traveling in the opposite direction striking her and her motorcycle. The force of the collision caused her left leg to be amputated at thigh level. She then had to endure nine surgeries over the course of several months.

Since this woman was an attorney, she had the knowledge and experience to seek out a law firm which would be aggressive, tenacious, and get her the money she deserved. She was aware of the reputation of the Dunnion Law Firm and hired them shortly after the accident.

The Dunnion Law Firm obtained more than the policy limits of $1,000,000.00 from the driver who allowed the tire to fall off the rear axle of the truck. However, the Dunnion Firm did not believe this would compensate her for her loss. Thus a lawsuit was filed and every stone was uncovered to obtain additional money from the individuals personally, as well as their $1,000,000 insurance policy. The Dunnion Firm then obtained an additional $25,000 from another policy of insurance which most attorneys would have overlooked.

The difficult part of this case for the Dunnion Firm was dealing with a $508,430.74 medical bill from which the service provider was demanding full payment. The Dunnion Firm was able to arrange a mediation and, after a day, negotiated this entire half-million dollar bill down to $100,000, thereby allowing the injured Plaintiff to take home another $400,000 plus.

The Dunnion Law Firm has a proven track record in dealing with serious and catastrophic injuries. They will settle for nothing less than top dollar and do everything to minimize the repayment of medical bills or other liens associated with settlement. As their client stated, "I found the empathy and professionalism I needed during this difficult time where I was trying to put my life back together again. The Dunnion Law Firm was there to help."
